Now, don't go into shock but. . . . . I have one 5 String Bass,
just the one and no more.
Those who know me a little better are probably thinking
"steady now Eric, what's this all about". :)
This is very much a closet bass - never rehearsed with it and
never played it live. :(
I have an Aria SB 404, which is listed a few posts back and when
I saw this I thought I must have that, the 404 being so nice, this
would compliment it nicely.
The truth. . . . . I just can't get on with a 5 string - maybe I'm too
set in my ways but try as I might, I can't get the hang of it.
I still pull it out from time to time - I was listening to the original
album by Seal, the other day and listening to those lovely bass lines
I thought I would have another go.
Half an hour later . . . . . Nope, still can't get to grips with it. Shame!
As a bass, it's a cracker - some really great sounds from the actives
and very powerful, everything you would want. . . . if you can play
a Fiver! Not unduly heavy, balances like all the Aria SB's of that design,
perfectly - I know I keep going on about Aria balance but it's true.
So, here he is, Mr 505!
I am still waiting for some extra information on the Jaydee Gemini,
so for time being, here's a sneaky pic, just to keep you interested!
That's all you're getting for now - hope to be able to post up the
whole story next time.
